Where to find Commandment Stones in Cult of the Lamb

Cult of the Lamb sees you leading a ragtag band of cultists as you attempt to vanquish several heretics and spread the word of “The One Who Waits.” To help you do that, you’ll need to collect Commandment Stones and teach your cult the importance of loyalty, hard work, and unquestioning faith.

Commandment Stones are one of the most important items in the game, but they’re surprisingly hard to find. If you’re looking to introduce new Doctrines and run a perfect cult, here’s what you need to know about Commandment Stones.

What are Commandment Stones and Doctrines?

Commandment Stones are used to unlock new Doctrines. Doctrines are in turn used to introduce new Rituals and other traits to your cult. Once you’ve collected three Commandment Stone fragments, you’ll have a completed Commandment Stone — which means you can head to your Temple and introduce a new Doctrine. These are split into five unique groups:

  • Sustenance: Related to food and hunger
  • Possessions: Related to structures and accruing gold
  • Afterlife: Related to death
  • Law and Order: Related to loyalty
  • Work and Worship: Related to Devotion and performing work around camp

When issuing a new Doctrine, you’ll first choose one of these five categories. You’ll then get to choose between two different Doctrines to enact. Depending on the category, these could be anything from generating Devotion faster or forcing your followers to work multiple days in a row without sleep. What you choose is up to you — but it all starts with collecting three Commandment Stone fragments.

Cult of the Lamb gives you several ways to collect Commandment Stone fragments. Here’s a closer look at each.

  • Level up your followers. Every time your followers fill their Loyalty meter, you’ll be given a Commandment Stone fragment. Because of this, make sure you offer Blessings and Gifts to your cultists as often as possible.
  • Slay a mini-boss. These beasts drop Commandment Stones when they’re defeated.
  • Buy from a merchant. Every so often you’ll come across a merchant selling Commandment Stones.

Best way to earn Commandment Stones

If you’re looking for a simple routine to farm Commandment Stone fragments, the below formula is a good starting point.

  • Bless all your followers as soon as they wake up. Before heading out on Crusades, make sure to get your Blessings in for the day and increase their Loyalty level. If you’re lucky, one of them will level up — granting you a Commandment Stone fragment.
  • Perform a Sermon. This is another daily activity that helps boost Loyalty.
  • Head out on a Crusade. Mini-bosses are your best bet for Commandment Stone fragments, so chug along through the main quest, and you’ll earn a steady flow of them.
  • Hand out any Gifts you picked up while Crusading. These often come in the form of necklaces and grant a huge chunk of Loyalty.

The best weapons in Fallout 4 and where to find them
People standing outside Nuka World.

Bethesda titles are massive, with tons of loot to acquire. From the fantasy series of Elder Scrolls VI, to the sci-fi world of the future in Starfield, the one thing they share is a wide range of weapons. In the wastelands of Fallout 4, the weapons (and their cool names) are a major perk. Some weapons might give you an edge, but others feel as if they’re just for show.

While more common weapons like the submachine gun, hunting rifle, or powerful Gauss rifle will serve you well in the wasteland (especially if you add a weapon mod), there are a few rare weapons in the game that you'll want to get your hands on. We've created a guide that covers some of the best weapons in Fallout 4, from high-powered rifles to ghoul-slamming melee weapons, as well as how their performance might affect your gameplay for the better.

Where to find every substory in Like a Dragon: Ishin!
Like a Dragon: Ishin Ryoma Sakamoto

The Like a Dragon series is mainly known for two things: deep, complex, and character-driven plots that feel like a full season of a high-budget drama, and outlandish substories. Like a Dragon: Ishin!, despite being set in the 1800s, doesn't shy away from including just as many of these wacky side activities as any other entry in the series. These bite-sized tales are often humorous, though occasionally heartfelt and genuine, serving as diversions from the main plot that are the perfect way to add some variety to your quest. If you love these little sidequests as much as we do, here are the locations for every substory in Like a Dragon: Ishin!
What are substories?

Substories are what sidequests are called in Like a Dragon: Ishin! Many will trigger just by approaching the right NPC at the right time and will see Ryoma get wrapped up in someone's bizarre problems that only he can solve. These usually take no more than a couple minutes, but are always worth doing.

Fortnite: Where to find wolves and how to tame them
Wolf in Fortnite.

As part of a recent Fortnite challenge, players are required to find and tame wolves -- a mechanic that has been in the game for a long time. The thing is, finding wolves can be a bit inconsistent, making this quest a bit trickier than you'd expect. The other thing is that -- once you find a wolf -- taming them can also be a chore, so players are likely struggling to complete this quest.

In this guide, we'll show you where to find wolves and how to tame them in Fortnite.
